The United Nations at the Millennium provides unparalleled coverage of each of the principal organs of the United Nations. This collection offers a survey of the life of each organ since its inception in 1945, the extent to which it has fulfilled its founding mission, and proposals for reform.

As well as providing comprehensive coverage of the present role of this highly influential organization, the book addresses larger questions about the role of the U.N. and the fitness for purpose of its principal organs as a means to global governance.
